Manchester United fans have been inundating Leicester midfielder Wilfried Ndidi with messages and urging him to sign.

Ndidi has been in action for Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations. Yesterday he inspired the Super Eagles to a 1-0 win over Guinea.

The 22-year-old midfielder is a player who we have already touted as a possible replacement for Ander Herrera.

United are expected to target midfielders after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s transfer is complete.

‘Flattered’

Ndidi was asked about United’s interest a fortnight ago. He told Goal: “I am flattered when hearing such a thing.

“It is very good to hear about that interest from big clubs, but there is nothing on the ground so I won’t care about it.”

 

Ndidi already has two seasons experience in the Premier League under his belt and is establishing himself as a top all round midfielder.

Last season he was an ever present, playing in every league game for Leicester.

In action for Nigeria at the AFCON yesterday he won three aerial duels, two tackles and two interceptions. He also created one chance.

In the process he bossed Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, who was subbed.

After the game he posted a message on Twitter. He quickly saw his replies filled with responses from United fans.
